Drawing on the traditional Javanese technique of wax-resist dyeing that originated in Indonesia, the Eon Collection explores the interconnections that exist between light and dark hues.

To create the collection, we began by hand coating sheets of silk with multiple layers of hot wax, allowing it to harden and cool to create a dye-resistant surface. We then cracked, folded and rubbed the solidified wax to create gradients and fissures. This cloth was dyed and heated, allowing the wax to melt away to reveal a complex network of contrasting colors.

Eon works with absorption and resistance to communicate a sense of the interconnection of opposites, while drawing on the process of layering to produce a depth of texture that suggests the weatherings of time.
